BIG BANG ONE CLICK MARC FERRERO
A MIX & MATCH EXPLOSION
Watchmaker Hublot and artist Marc Ferrero have joined forces for a new artistic endeavor: telling a story on a watch dial. A fusion between two worlds giving rise to two very colorful limited editions.
When two talented masters of the art of fusion in their respective fields collide, it cannot fail to be astounding, explosive and, above all, a great success, as is the case with this pair of Big Bang One Click Marc Ferrero designs from Hublot. The French artist who skillfully combines different techniques and artistic trends for the storytelling art movement which he created, has left his creative stamp on the dials of two watches decorated with bright graphics.
Launched at the start of the year, both series are limited to 50 pieces and come in two different shades: pink red and turquoise blue. The black lacquered dials tell a story interpreted by a piece by Marc Ferrero, Lipstick. Dominating the dial is the face of a woman, eyes hidden behind large sunglasses, a lipstick placed against her mouth as if the act of painting her lips is frozen in time. Surrounding this, there are different depictions of emotions experienced by a woman throughout her day according to the role that she plays: mother, wife, friend, business woman, etc. Three rhodium-plated hands display the hours, minutes and seconds.
The timekeeping is regulated by the HUB1710 caliber which offers a power reserve of approximately 50 hours. The automatic-winding movement is housed in a 39 mm steel case and topped with a bezel decorated with 42 blue topazes or red spinels, depending on the version.
The Big Bang One Click Marc Ferrero comes with two easy-to-change straps matching the dial: one made of rubber covered with calf leather cut to form patterns and the other made of alligator with tonal stitching.
